Why Do People Like Destinations So Much?
Social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Digg, StumbleUpon and Google+ are great places to find new customers and to network with old ones. But what happens when you need to find customers in a foreign country that doesn’t use or access social media? Social marketing experts have discovered a fun way to reach overseas markets: The power of destination marketing. Tours, travel, and adventure are great ways to find new customers and to expand an existing customer base.
Destination marketing lets you add new destinations to your social media itinerary, and lets your existing customers know where you’ve been and where you’re going. To start simply click on the Destinations tab when viewing any selected Segment. With Destinations you can activate any number of interactive marketing workflows. For example – You can use Facebook custom audiences to automatically sync your segment with the Facebook custom audience and deliver highly targeted ads with Clearbit, actionable data and SFDC rich data. The possibilities are almost endless!
Destination marketing creates a powerful place branding effect. When people see that you’ve been to places, done things and experienced things at certain popular tourist destinations, they associate you with those destinations and that’s a powerful form of brand association. The best destination marketers understand the value that destination branding offers to their clients and use it smartly.
Marketing your website at the right destination connects you with the right audience. For example – If you offer travel tips and information at ski resorts located in beautiful parts of Mexico, then you will want to target Mexican tourists. Similarly, if you’re a New York based travel company that offers ski accommodation in beautiful European resort towns, then you want to advertise your service to UK tourists. By using the appropriate place branding techniques you will be able to make the most of your destination branding and connect with the correct target audience.
